Spring has sprung!

Running for sheer pleasure and delight....and because they can!

Welcome Fellow Followers of Beck Brow Alpacas! This is my first blog, so please be gentle.

Life at Beck Brow is a haven of peace and tranquility, the birds are singing and the beck is flowing and there are a few brave little shoots peeping out. It has been sunny and still in the Eden Valley. The scenery is just as spectacular as it was in the snow, but now holds the promise of Spring.

The alpacas, who we all know are intuitive animals have already moved in to Spring mode. Led by the charming Minnie who has perfected alpaca/human relations, the gang rolled and skipped like new born lambs. I don't know who enjoyed this more...the rollers or the appreciative spectators. This flurry of activity prompted some serious grazing and the heartbeat of Beck Brow returned to a calm and steady rhythm.
